How I Became a Pirate


Adventure abounds with HOW I BECAME A PIRATE, based upon the book "How I Became a Pirate" written by Melinda Long and Illustrations by David Shannon. Jenny Male directs the delightfully silly story of young Jeremy Jacob who is plucked from obscurity while innocently constructing a sand castle and is thrust into a brand-new life as a pirate.
